James Comey must resign; Congress must end @FBI’s #CrossroadsGridlock

James Comey’s behavior looks worse and worse

February 15 at 1:11 PM

Comey believed that the entire country needed to know that a presidential candidate might be connected to information on a laptop that she didn’t own, but the vice president did not need to be told privately that a key presidential adviser was definitely lying about his relationship with a foreign government. The inconsistency leaves one speechless.

There is more to the FBI’s inconsistencies than the media is willing to address. Ever.

I’ll try to state the bedrock issue as concisely as possible:

Either the Federal Bureau of Investigation is the investigative arm of the Department of Justice acting under the Department’s supervision as its flowchart maintains, or it is a stand-alone U.S. Intelligence agency, as the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate designated for purposes of Oversight.

As the FBI cannot be both the DoJ’s servant and its own master, it currently is whichever is most convenient at any given time, which is entirely consistent with its history … J. Edgar Hoover ignored his responsibilities to uphold citizens’ rights so as to infringe upon them routinely and egregiously, and there have been few interruptions of his apparently contagious abusive traits since the agency’s inception, so few that I haven’t found any.

If James Comey would just do his job, I could write about interior design and residential landscapes

My posts about Florida’s public corruption – all within the FBI’s power to alleviate – date back to 2010. Sadly, this is my second blog; I’ve been speaking out against Florida frame-ups since finding out about judicial corruption in 2004, after learning in 2001 about systemic police and prosecutorial corruption while fighting for my very life.

Comey is an unacceptable Department of Justice servant, and an unacceptable master of an Intelligence agency. Congress must not only see to it that he steps down, but see to it that the role of the FBI is made clear … servant or master, one or the other, not alternately one then the other, whichever is more convenient to continuing Hoover’s histrionics.

Read Senator Patrick Leahy’s press release about everything that was going wrong at the FBI in 2007, which is still going wrong in 2017. Please do not skip the portion where Leahy describes the FBI’s inability to hang on to laptops or weapons (160 each) or Leahy’s assertion that the FBI was at a “crossroads,” one that called for its rapid reversal on wrongdoing, or its extinction.

The resulting gridlock from the FBI having been at that crossroads for so very long deprives millions of Americans of their inherent rights on an ongoing basis. It’s time for Congress to stop asking what more they can do for their party/corporations/billionaires and start doing what we the people have begged and prayed for – provide us with relief and redress from public corruption that the FBI has been designated to address, and won’t.

Congress must recreate the FBI, under new leadership, or demolish it. Immediately.

  1. I’ve heard it put this way… in practice, security risks are seen as threats to the governing administration and political party system. I guess, because everything is a power struggle among the people at the top, regular folks can’t expect to have their justice and human rights protected.


    • I wish it were as simple as the FBI choosing to prioritize national security risks over the rights of trampled citizens, JoAnn. What is closer to the truth is the agency is corrupt and incompetent, to boot … if the FBI knew how to address security risks and if security risks were a top priority, they’d have recovered their 160 laptops before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence found out about them. If they’re learned anything about addressing a national security crisis since that under-reported scandal, they’ve hidden it well. There are some field offices that are doing very good work, and I’m grateful to them. They don’t include Detroit, Dallas, Melbourne, Fort Pierce, Miami Dade, etc. Specific field offices’ failure to investigate deadly, self-evident public corruption has led to more deaths, which means that the FBI is riddled with rogue agents who need to be prosecuted, which is no secret to Director Comey. Change is in the air, here’s hoping it’s entirely for the better.
